The proposed fixed recoverable costs scheme aims to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of clinical negligence claims by supporting:
- quicker and more cost effective resolution for all parties
- greater opportunities for early learning of lessons from harmful incidents to inform safer clinical practice
- access to justice for those claimants bringing clinical negligence claims of a low monetary value, but complex nature
- patients’ access to justice by streamlining the system and incentivising earlier resolution of such claims
